The picture I saw was the recent one of the fuel injected motor. I was looking at the little aluminum piece that protects the lip where the hood latch contacts it. Does it act as a latch stop?

Oh that piece. Yes it is a latch stop.
I believe it comes in the FFR supply.

Ken Pike moved the latch over toward the center of the hood...CSX location. Then mounts the corner latch in a totally different way.

Am I saying it right? (If not, Ken cut off a piece od angle bar and made a couple stops...memory going south)

Here is a close up:


Hope this helps.

That's the one. My hood sits a little off and rubs the side of the body. Do they act as a latch stop so that when locked they would hold the hood? I was going to mount them under the lip and notch them to create a positive lock for the latch and hold the hood center to prevent rubbing....
